Is the Singaporean heat and humidity getting to you and your hair? Even though we can’t control the weather, we can certainly take charge of how we care for our hair! Today, we’ll be sharing our top tips and our Beauty Insider-approved haircare routine for healthy and lustrous locks!

Top tips for strong and healthy hair

All of us have different hair types and textures. Hence, it’s important to know what ingredients and techniques work best for your scalp and hair. As a rule of thumb, those with dry hair should only wash their hair once or twice a week. On the other hand, those with oily scalps who are prone to getting dandruff should wash every alternate day with ingredients like salicylic acid and tea tree oil to cleanse and detoxify the scalp. On top of your regular hair-washing, it’s good to go in for a deep cleanse at least once a week to thoroughly clear clogged follicles and eliminate impurities.

Hydration is key for strong, healthy and frizz-free hair!

Additionally, we recommend that you avoid going for products that contain sulphates and silicones. The former strips the scalp of its natural moisture while the latter weighs the hair down and blocks your strands from absorbing nutrients from your haircare products. Also, hydration is key for all hair types. Besides nourishing and rebalancing your scalp’s pH and moisture levels, moisturizing treatments like hair masks and tonics help to prevent frizz and breakage in the long run.

The best haircare routine for hot and humid weather

Here in sunny Singapore, the heat and humidity can do quite a number on our hair. The heat dries out our strands and increases the scalp’s oil production, while the humidity causes our dry hair to frizz up and become an untamable mess of a mane. But not to worry, we’ve got you and your hair covered! Here are 10 of our favourite haircare treatments and products to protect and nourish your hair in our Singaporean climate.

1. Bee Choo Origin Herbal Hair Treatment

First on the list, we have this incredibly soothing herbal hair treatment by Bee Choo Origin. Essentially, it is a herbal cream that contains fresh and all-natural herbs and ingredients. Besides its key ingredient ginseng, this herbal cream also contains other traditional Chinese herbs like ling zhi, he shou wu and dang gui to stimulate blood circulation, soothe itching and inflammation and reduce dandruff and fallout. It’s also a great treatment for women experiencing hair loss post-partum! Additionally, the herbal cream contains a natural-based dye to cover up white and grey hairs for a natural shade of reddish copper colour, depending on individual hair texture and quality. This treatment takes a total of 90 minutes, and even includes a scalp analysis, steaming treatment and an olive oil massage for a holistic haircare experience. To find out more about the entire process, read our review here.

3. WD TCM Nature’s Crown Shampoo

Here, we have yet another haircare treatment that incorporates traditional Chinese medicine in its formulation. Made in Australia, WD’s Nature’s Crown Shampoo contains herbs like Chinese knotweed, gingko and ling zhi to rejuvenate and detoxify the scalp. Because it’s so incredibly hydrating, you can even double it up as a conditioner. It is recommended to use 10 pumps of this shampoo for long hair and 5 pumps for short to medium-length hair. To maximize the benefits of the herbs, massage the shampoo onto your scalp for 5 to 10 minutes to encourage blood circulation before rinsing it off in the shower.

Available for $68 at Insider Mall.

4. The Cosmetic Republic Multivitamin Shampoo

The Cosmetic Republic is well-known for their effective haircare tools and at-home treatments. Although they offer a variety of different shampoos for different hair types, their multivitamin one is our absolute must-have! Besides being free of sulphates and parabens, it contains a nourishing blend of Vitamins A, B, C, E and F as well as keratin microspheres to restore volume, strength and shine.

5. Phyto Phytopolleine Botanical Scalp Treatment

We love a good hair oil, and this one by Phyto is a powerful blend of 100% essential oils to balance and revitalize the scalp. Contrary to popular belief, hair oils won’t actually make your oily scalp more greasy. By thoroughly hydrating and nourishing your scalp, haircare oils help to lock in moisture and regulate sebum production to prevent dandruff and dehydration. The botanical oils in this formulation include that of rosemary, eucalyptus, lemon and sage to eliminate impurities and fortify the strands for a healthy sheen.

Available for $55 at Insider Mall.

6. Chobs Organic Argan Oil Treatment

Here’s another treatment oil that’s great for your hair! This vegan one by Chobs contains a balance of argan and evening primrose oil to deeply hydrate and fortify your strands as you go about your day. The reason why we love argan oil is because it contains a rich concentration of oleic and linolenic acids to combat environmental aggressors and free radicals. As a bonus, it can even be used on your face and body after your shower for soft and supple skin.

Available for $34.80 at Insider Mall.

7. SMIB Anti Hair Loss Coral Calcium Hair Scalp Essence

Next, we have this nutrient-packed scalp essence by Korean brand SMIB. With calcium as its key ingredient, this essence is great for strengthening the follicles and roots and fortifying the hair fibres to prevent breakage and fallout. After applying this essence evenly onto your scalp and hair, SMIB also offers a separate scalp massager that you can use to massage the essence further into your scalp. Over time, the essence will help to thicken the hair line and also treat bald patches caused by tension alopecia.
